Re: New GoPro HERO5 Firmware Update!!

Hi Chris,

 

I don't understand what "Enables front screen navigation with camera button" means : do you have an explanation ?

I updated my Hero5 black to FW 01.20, and I don't see anything new regarding the front screen Smiley Indifferent

 

Thanks !

Ok I found it : it allows to control some settings from the front display, using both Mode and shutter buttons.
Handy when you're underwater and can't use the touch screen.

Re: New GoPro HERO5 Firmware Update!!

 

Great Question @Anonymous.

Enable front screen is to allow you to control settings and

other things without using the back lcd. Almost like most GoPro's do.

Do when the cameras facing the other way you can still see what your doing. 

Version 1.00.00 didn't show it just showed the icon of what mode your in. 

 

Also sorry to hear about that @Anonymous.

Make sure you have the latest update, and latest update on the GoPro App (Capture)

You'll need capture to use the HERO5. Also you'll need to go to connection in

the top menu, and pair the GoPro HERO5 to the Capture App. If that doesn't work

you'll need to go to GoPro setup, and reset the camera, or wifi settings.

Re: New GoPro HERO5 Firmware Update!!

Has anyone noticed that the bottom section of the touch screen is chopped off in video mode?

Don't think I noticed it before I updated the firmware.
